How many times has this happened?  All planned up for the next trek and once we reach our basecamp and start unpacking we find a list of items missing that we require on the trek. On normal trips, things can be managed, but on treks sometimes the situation gets really bad as not everything is available at the base camps. Check the list mentioned below for all the essential things that you need to pack for a trek.

Just helping out fellow wravelers with the list of items we deem necessary for any altitude trek in the Himalayas.  Feel free to add any item you think that we missed out on.
